Surprisingly Great Time!

I was here for my 30th class reunion... We had a freakin ball. I was expecting to run into some issues because of the rating; however, everything was great. The service, the room and the quality was all great. The resort is beautiful and clean. The people were very nice and accommodating. They have a dance club on the resort and the DJ was great as well. I loved the fact that although it is a family friendly resort, I did not encounter any children at the swim up bar or in one of the other pools. Families seemed to stay in one big pool area. The day activities could be better. And maybe some music paying where most of the adults hang out at the pool.

The holiday of a lifetime !!!!

Just stayed here for two weeks with my boyfriend and another couple and what an amazing holiday. The hotel is one of the best I have seen and the staff are the kindest most friendly people I have ever met. They all really make an effort to remember everyone's names and no matter how many times you see them they always say hi and make you feel welcome. You feel completely safe to walk about the hotel and grounds on your own. The housekeeping of the rooms was gold standard every day it felt brand new and fresh. Loved the style of the rooms and the view from the balcony is just breathtaking. The food is brilliant as well as the entertainment there really is something for everyone. Don't have a bad word to say about it complete luxury haven't been back 24 hours yet and already looking at dates to go back. Thank you to the Riu Cancun for giving me the best holiday ever and memories to last a lifetime!!

Great Family Vacation

Family of 5, 3 kids ages 19 to 15. we had a great time at this hotel, excellent service and extremely clean grounds. Steak House was amazing as well as the Gourmet restaurant both a must try for dinner. Quality and variety of food was great, most food is freshly made for you, fruits, fresh juices and much more! White sand beach super clean, crystal clear water and shallow. Staff is hardworking and very friendly, do not forget to tip they appreciate it very much, those who complaint about this place are seriously joking and should not. Highly recommend the ATV Extreme day trip as well as the Catamaran to Isla Mujeres ( upgrade is a must for $35 USD pp!!! crew is amazing and super fun!!) I definitely recommend this place and we would go back for sure!!

Perfect for our Purposes

The service and cleanliness were impeccable. The rooms are a little barren, not real cozy but you really aren't in the rooms except to sleep and for that they're fine. Must rise early to get the good sunbeds. Great party atmosphere and the location is walking distance to all the clubs. We really enjoyed our visit here!

Went on a guys trip and upon checkin they had us in the annex building and we were able to switch to main building with no problems. I came with my wife in 2004 shortly after they opened and I must say the refurbishment did a world of wonders for this property. All the facilities were nice. I never got in the wet and drinking pool because it didn't look to appealing to me with all the drunken bodies in it if you catch my drift. The beach was wonderful. Never had a problem with lounge chairs. The restaurant selections were cool also. Didn't try the Japanese restaurant. We had to be shuttled to the riu caribe in order to jetski due to the size of our group. The room was efficient except the beds were pushed together when we arrived so we separated them. Room was cleaned daily. The only reason I gave 5 stars was due to the limited alcohol selection. They didn't have Jack Daniels at any bar.
